HP OfficeJet Pro 6978 running wirelessly on two computers.

Hi, I am using this printer wirelessly on two computers.  The one I am having trouble with is a Macbook Air running High Sierra 10.13.1.

The printer prints just fine (although the ink doesn't last as long as advertised) and it will scan to an email but I cannot get it to scan to a folder.


Any thoughts?
